Re: 2015 season - Overall

I can't imagine that hurting their score - it was a fantastic GE moment. I felt sooo bad for the soloist on Finals night as his mic didn't work. Such a great performer and wonderful music moment, you hate to see that happen.

Re: 2015 season - Overall

I really enjoyed the season and loved many of the shows. There were only a couple that just don't make me want to watch them again. I will say I was pretty disappointed and floored with the results. I just don't see how BD won it this year on many levels. To their members, congrats! But damn, how wa...

Re: It's a season of Close Scoring

I'm pulling for Crown to take 1st this year. Their program is just so enjoyable from top to bottom - the music/brass are amazing, guard over-the-top-crazy good (soooo much equipment work!), percussion IMO is great....just so powerful! The Blue Devils to me should be in 4th. I just don't see how this...

Re: BigMo's Rankings thru July 29, 2015

I agree that the three corps you mentioned may need to reevaluate their programs if they want to compete in the top 4. I really enjoy Madison's and Phantom's shows this year though. I was expecting to be disappointed with Phantom based on what I had read but I really enjoyed it. Loved the music, dri...

Re: It's a season of Close Scoring

Very excited to see how this week turns out! 1st place is really up in the air right now. I'd love to see Crown or Bluecoats take it this year - just love both of their shows.

Re: Big Mo's Rankings Through July 18, 2015

Thanks for posting!

I hate that gap between Bluecoats and those ahead....I hope they can tighten that up!

Also, remember Semi-Finals is now the Top 25, not 17.

Re: Houston July 17th Tournament of Champions Show

Thanks for the thoughts!

I know you are a percussion guy - any thoughts on Crown this year? It appears they have improved in this area, but curious as to what you think.

Re: Wakeup Sound Machine!

I never really posted a whole lot, but I enjoyed this website a lot when it was hopping! I do stop by a couple times a year to see if there's any life left. I guess the forum has been kinda like my interest in DCI lately, still love the activity, but there are other parts of life that have taken ov...

Re: Big Mo's Rankings through July 7, 2015

Thanks for putting this together! I love how close some corps are currently - I hope that continues through the season (though I'm sure they will start to spread out once they meet up at bigger regionals :| )

Re: Show Clips

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YW7ndjORjs Check this preview from the Cascades. I have to say, I am extremely impressed and think they will turn some heads this year. The show is designed very well and I absolutely love the ballad. The guard is integrated into the very nicely. If they can clean u...

Re: Big Mo's Rankings through June 27, 2015

I think you are correct on the 8 you listed as definitely in. I'd add Blue Stars and Madison to that list too. Based on recent score spreads between those two and the corps behind them, I think they are locked in for Finals. The last two spots are still TBD in my opinion. I think Crossmen and Boston...

Re: Big Mo's Rankings through June 27, 2015

Thanks for posting! It seems weird to see Boston not in the Top 12 but I don't think this is out of the question this year. I bet they will get their act together and will make Finals, but I think it is going to be close. I keep hearing great things about The Academy this year so while I don't see t...
